I started off with tracing the woodpecker on to white fabric then dye painted the bird. From there, out came the beads and this is the rest of the story!
Seemed at times like a slow process...and yes, that's a glass of wine!
The tree was fun to make..I started off with this commercial fabric and painted it with acrylic paints, cut out holes and over layed the painted bark on top of a piece of orange hand dyed fabric.
Filling in more beads...
Now to put all the pieces together!!
And a quick animation from start to finish.....now to my next project!
